Recent Polymer Art Acquisitions at Racine Art Museum

The Racine Art Museum is going to host an exhibition of works titled “Polymer Art: Recent Acquisitions,” which runs through June 2018.The show features new artworks since the donation of over 200 polymer pieces in 2011. The collection has been expanded by adding upon existing bodies of work and incorporating different types of objects or broadening the scope of years represented. The exhibition includes pieces that were part of the original gift that established RAM’s polymer collection considered to be the largest in the world. “Polymer Art: Recent Acquisitions” combines artworks based on material commonality. Upholding the museum’s desire to look at the field in a broad context, polymer objects will continue to be exhibited alongside craft made with other media.Art jewelry makes up a major portion of the holdings in this material. There are also other examples such as sculpture, furniture with polymer veneers, and vessels. The highlights of the display include a teapot by Jeffrey Lloyd Dever, Seeking Solace, which is the first piece purchased with RAM’s Polymer Art Acquisition and Care Fund. The fund was established to support the pieces that are already in the museum’s holdings and acquire new polymer works.Racine Art Museum, RAM in downtown Racine and the Charles A. Wustum Museum of Fine Arts together seek to elevate the stature of contemporary crafts to that of fine arts. It aims to do this by organizing and hosting significant works in craft media with painting, sculpture, and photography. The campuses also provide educational art programming.“Polymer Art: Recent Acquisitions” runs from January 28 through June 24, 2018 at the Racine Art Museum, 441 Main Street, Racine, WI 53403.
